Isabella Glaz arrived in the United States in 1991 and currently resides and creates in New York City. Isabella's art work is exhibited in US and European galleries and sold to private collectors.

The nature of my work arises from my imagination, a guiding force that permeates my art with bold and vibrant colors. I gather my inspiration from the perpetual flux of dreams and experiences that course through my life, enriching my emotional landscape with vivid imagery that is reflected through my paintings. My style embraces a surrealistic vision with an impressionistic feel in combination with Art Deco colors that depict a passionate display of emotions. Though my artwork incorporates the previously mentioned styles, it is not bound by them. Therefore, each of my paintings differs in subject and composition.
